Voluntary Action South West Surrey 2023 Conference, themed ‘Recovery’, will be a day full of interesting discussion and debate, with a line-up of expert speakers and workshop presenters.

It takes place at the Rik Medlik Building, University of Surrey, on Tuesday, April 4, 9.30am to 4.30pm.

The event will give everyone the chance to explore the impact that the pandemic has had on the charity and voluntary sector and how we have had to adapt our working practices to reflect the change in society.

There will be lots of different workshops for delegates to take part in, both in the morning and afternoon, plus an opportunity to visit our marketplace – a space where delegates will have a chance to meet an array of businesses whose services support the voluntary sector.

Plus free parking and a sandwich lunch included with your ticket.
